This is the last station of the Red Line to have been commissioned so far. The station is named after Hazi Aslanov, the glorious son of the Azerbaijani people, twice the hero of the Soviet Union. The station went down in history for having inauguration twice. The official inauguration ceremony of the station that received its first passengers on December 10, 2002 was held on July 7, 2003.

The construction of the station began in the 1980s but was halted during the crisis years of the 1990s. Since the construction of the station was completed thanks to 4.5 million Euros allocated by the European Union, authorized representatives of the organization were invited to the official inauguration ceremony. The Azerbaijani government incurred the remaining costs for construction work, allocating 5.5 billion manat for the construction work. The inauguration ceremony was also attended by Artur Rasi-zade, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Margherita Boniver, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs of the European Union, and Michele Lake, the Deputy Directorate-General of the European Commission.
Three “ET-5 M” type escalators were installed in one of the exits of the station and two in the other. The station is designed with minaret-shaped rectangular columns, which is in line with national architectural traditions. The thickness of the columns gives the station a magnificent effect, which is typical of palaces. The columns in two rows lie under the ceiling, as if taking on all its weight. In general, embodying the atmosphere of the period of independence, the station differs significantly from the stations built in previous years. However, the overall complex approach has been retained.
Gray marble and black granite manufactured in Iran were used in the flooring works. The granite panels were used on the border strips of the station's track walls.  Placed between the metal networks and giving the ceiling a special effect, the lanterns are reflected in the gray coating of the floor, magnifying the effect of greatness.  This view is further beautified with the rhombic stripes of white marble in the floor area between the columns. 
The breadth of the lobbies is complemented by their hall shape. There is a plaque indicating that the completion of the station was funded by the European Union, along with its flag on the wall of the staircase ceiling.

A fragment from the piece of music "Ay ishiginda", composed by Gambar Huseynli, is played on the trains arriving at the station.
